Does your company block blogs?

This morning I met up with a client to ask her feedback of some changes we’ve had to our Analyst Attitude Surveys surveys of analysts. I came away with good news.. and bad news.

The good news is that she thinks our survey is much improved ‘head and shoulders above’ where were were a couple of years ago. For this, all the praise has to go to our colleague Efrem Mallach. But there’s bad news… her company blocks their employees from reading blogs, which of course means that she can’t read our blog.

There is now a partial “work around”. This blog is also available at .

If “your” IT people are keen enough to block blogs, then they may also have software smart enough to stop proxy avoidance tactics like this. Let us know if you have any suggestions or encounter any problems.
